    Dear Kriesi,

    First, thank you for these wonderful themes. Last year I bought the Twicet 5 in 1 WP theme; this year, with the release of WordPress 3.0, I have purchased the Display theme. You do excellent work and I wish you great success.

    I have three separate problems which are somewhat related to one another. Entries in the Sidebar Menu and the Main Menu are not displaying properly.

    (1) on the SIDEBAR menu, a menu item, when it matches the current page, should be a different color- black, for instance- to indicate to the website visitor, “this is the page that you are currently on.” So for example if I visit my current website (which uses the Minimal skin) and I go to the “About” page, then the SIDEBAR menu link for “About,” the page that I’m on, should be black- to indicate that I’m currently looking at the “About” page- instead it is gray, like all of the other menu items. The SIDEBAR menu’s current link remains visually identical to all the other menu links no matter which skin I try to use (Light, Minimal, or Dark).

    Note 1: this problem exists whether the SIDEBAR menu links have been created with the Custom Menu widget, or with the Pages widget- the SIDEBAR menu links always remain the same color, including the link for the current page.

    Note 2: this remains the case even after I edited the style.css file at line 317 from this:

    .sidebarmenu .current {



    to this:

    .sidebarmenu .current {


    color: #000000;


    This was the change suggested in the thread: (Purchase code hidden if logged out)(Purchase code hidden if logged out) -title

    This change did not solve the problem.

    (2) THERE IS A SECOND, RELATED PROBLEM. Please carefully note- while this second problem also relates to menus, this second problem is connected to the MAIN menu, the horizontal menu that runs across the TOP of the page.

    Once again, if one is on the “About” page, the MAIN menu link to the “About” page should appear as black, or bold, or somehow visually different- but again, it remains gray, just like all the other MAIN menu links.

    (3) THERE IS A THIRD, POSSIBLY RELATED PROBLEM. This is not about font color or weight but rather about font size. My “About” page has 1 subpage and 2 subpages (one child and 2 grandchildren). If you mouseover the “About” page link in the MAIN menu, the subpage and the 2 subpages appear- but none of the subpages or sub-subpages are appearing in the smaller font- they appear in exactly the same size font as the top level MAIN menu links. Main menu subpage entries should appear in a slightly smaller font, as you see here when you mouseover Kriesi’s “About” link the MAIN menu on top:

    Info, in case you need it: clean WordPress 3.01 install, not an upgrade from 2.x; also, clean Display theme install, using files I downloaded from Themeforest today (20 August). If you want the URL of the development server or WP Admin access, please email me off list. If you could please help with these questions I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you-

    Kind regards,




    Can you post the link to your site? You may need some additional CSS :)
